“for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.”James 1:20
Anger has no place in our personal lives. In this time, when the people of the world are becoming ungovernable, the fruit of the Spirit needs to be manifest in our words and deeds.
- Long suffering.
Comfort one another, the day is fast approaching.
Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.James 1:19–20
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.Galatians 5:22–24

Thank you. This is good to remember. We need reminding on how to replace our anger with the fruit of righteousness. In the brain we can replace fear, anger, sadness with love, long-suffering and gentleness.

I’m seeing more reason than ever before to ” walk our talk” if we want to be able to witness at all in these troubled times.
